In case you didn't see the post in the seed exchange board ....I'll be putting together the GVGO membership packs again this year. I hope everyone enjoyed them and put them to good use this season. The weigh off season is over so that means the seed harvesting season has begun. This is a great way to get your seeds out there to other growers. Last year I think I did up about 240 packs so if you want every pack to have your seed please send in 240-250 (It really helps if you include a note with how many packs are included). We really need more of the "other" giants like Long Gourds, Tomatoes, Watermelon, Field Pumpkin, Green Squash, as well as the "other other" giants like carrots, beets, cabbage, rutabaga, cucumber, and others. So once you get the seeds harvested, dried properly, packaged and labelled (individually is preferred but bulk seeds will be packaged as time permits) please send them to me;

Last year, one package from a grower never arrived, out of 35 packages, although Canada Post says it was delivered (we have security cameras so were able to determine that it never was delivered). Unfortunately these were likely the best seeds that would have been in your seed pack, but they never did show up anywhere. If you are sending top of the line, irreplaceable, best in show seeds, feel free to send them "signature required" just to be on the safe side.
I plan on putting together the packages the same way as last year, and it went as follows; Everyone that sent in seeds was given pretty much a complete set of everything that was sent in (except their own). After that, I started filling the seed packs weekly as I got an update on memberships paid. So the earlier you paid your membership, the better selection you got in your seed pack. That being said, last year the selection was great so everyone got a great pack but if you are paying your membership in March instead of January there may be a few seeds that we have run out of by then. Also, if you have any special requests (certain vegetables you are looking for or certain vegetables you will never grow) just send along a note or email me pumpkin1088 at outlook dot com.
